LGBT: Same old same old?

Here is the science.  It is nice science, because it considers the importance of fuzzy external factors.  Even if it has nothing to do with you, just having positive ideologies around can be really helpful.  It is the great fault and endearment of liberals, that they base so much of their politics on these fuzzy, "unrealities."  Certainly, such fuzzies can be easily fabricated in liberal heads into fantastic, self-serving missions.  On the other hand, it is the great fault and strength of conservatives that they tend to deny that fuzzies should even factor.  Ultimately, this is a contest between poor and rich, because it is the rich who can do without such marginal fuzziness, and it is the poor who hang on it.  Rather sadly, the poor and the liberals can hang on fuzzy external factors which have nothing to do with their own real lives.  But, sometimes, this is enough to win battles and make laws.  You know, this is a kind of a magical ability to transform the concept of, "not-standing," into legitimate, "standing," in legal procedures.  It is our constitutional legacy which sometimes gives sway to the delusions of the masses.  Needless to say, we have more legacies than constitutional.

This is good news. Psychology majors like me will love this. It pans it out. It speaks the truth - about human-beingness. Human-beingness is not the same as corporate person-hood, which the GOP is trumpetting for.

Donald Trump mad a promise in his campaign that LGBT people would not be messed with. "People should be able to use the bathrooms that they want to use." Lots of his friends are gay. He espouses libertarian ideas. But, now, he releases this:
